Is the Carnivore Diet a Failure?
The Peterson family has fallen on hard times, and some are unrealistically blaming the Carnivore diet. The Vegan community in particular seems to have latched on to this as proof that the Carnivore diet is bad for you and an overall failure, and that Mikhaila Peterson and Jordan Peterson have been lying about the health benefits.
In this video I give my thoughts on how we judge our nutrition, and offer some advice on how to pick the diet and foods that are right for you. I also talk about my experiences with the Ketogenic and Carnivore diets and my results, and how to do an elimination style approach to refine these diets into a personalized nutrition plan to help reduce or eliminate your health problems and symptoms.
An anecdotal case of failure is not proof of anything, nor is an anecdotal case of success. When put in the context of the many people on the Carnivore and Ketogenic diets who have good results we have to look at the group as a whole instead of just individual cases. The process is weigh the anecdotal evidence, self experiment n=1, find repeatable results and test them, and tailor your diet to fit your symptoms.
Many Vegans, including Vegan Gains, who commented on this in his latest video fail to use this very common sense logic and approach to nutrition. They seek to confirm their own biases and ignore any evidence which contradicts their health claims. There is plenty of evidence that does so.
